Telling me that being attractive is hard is like when rich people tell me having a lot of money is hard.
I was sitting around and reading the Internet, when I came acrossthis article about this woman who insinuates that she is too pretty to take a job. Since I’m the vainest person I know, naturally this article piqued my interest. Is she so beautiful that people just pay her to exist? How do I sign up for this because I could use the cash?
Sorry, I’m a little obsessed with these Sprite commercials.
Which side of the cookie do you prefer?
I’ve always insisted that Latinos do advertising better than the Americanos. Sorry I’m not sorry!
Peter Pan syndrome is quite common among our generation. It affects people who do not want to or feel unable to grow up. It is funny how as children we are always in such a rush to grow up, and miss a lot of the magic of those years thinking that everything will be better once we get older.
I can help but feel foolish when I think about all the times I wished to graduate back when I was a freshman or a sophomore in college. As I write I am living the first week of the last time my life will ever be measured in semesters, an I can’t help but wish that I could live in this moment eternally.
Please do not scroll down to find out who said the words you are about to read. You are in for quite the surprise since one would never expect these words to be from this person.
I have forgiven mistakes that were indeed almost unforgivable. I’ve tried to replace people who were irreplaceable and tried to forget those who were unforgettable. I’ve acted on impulse, have been disappointed by people when I thought that this could never be possible. But I have also disappointed those who I love. I have laughed at inappropriate occasions. I’ve made friends that are now friends for life. I’ve screamed and jumped for joy.
I’ve loved and I’ve been loved. But I have also been rejected, and I have been loved without loving the person back. I’ve lived for love alone and made vows of eternal love. I’ve had my heart broken many, many times! I’ve cried while listening to music and looking at old pictures. I’ve called someone just to hear their voice on the other side. I have fallen in love with a smile. At times, I thought I would die because I missed someone so much. At other times, I felt very afraid that I might lose someone very special (which ended up happening anyway).
But I have lived! And I still continue living everyday. I’m not just passing through life…and you shouldn’t either. Live! The best thing in life is to go ahead with all your plans and your dreams, to embrace life and to live everyday with passion, to lose and still keep the faith and to win while being grateful. All of this because the world belongs to those who dare to go after what they want. And because life is really too short to be insignificant.
and the writer of these beautiful words is…
I bet you weren’t expecting that one huh?
